If it’s time to consider an air conditioner replacement, having a professional perform a load calculation is important in choosing the system that will work best for your living space. All homes are different in their cooling requirements. If your system is inaccurately sized, it will decrease your comfort and increase your utility bills. Let’s explain what goes into a load calculation.
Traditionally, a load calculation was conducted only by finding the square footage of a home. That’s still one piece of the puzzle, but we consider many other components to find the products that will function the best for your home. Our experts will look at the climate in Phoenix, the square footage and structure of your home, the level of insulation, your roof size and type, the size and location of windows, your home’s sun exposure and your family’s habits and schedule.
We aim to help you find the air conditioner replacement that is right for your home. If your system is really small, you’ll have trouble keeping your home at the desired temperature. And just because a system is larger doesn’t always mean it’s better. In fact, if your system is too large for your home, you could have a lot of problems:
- Because it won’t have to run as long, an oversized system will regularly warm up and cool down. This creates more wear and tear on the system than normal.
- It can also minimize productivity and raise utility bills.
- Another problem with an oversized system cycling on and off too much is it will fail to dehumidify your air properly.
